I hope this is the correct location to post this type of inquiry.


I have just downloaded and installed the following package:






Windows installer with the basic Subversion Win32 binaries.

(File size: 2815.9)


I installed with no issues.


I created a directory C:\SVN


Then from a cmd box I executed

svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs c:\svn

And I created the repository.

I tried the svnlook info c:\svn and it displays date and time and 0 on the
next line.


Then I updated the svnserve.conf file according to the book.

anon-access = read
auth-access = write
password-db = passwd
realm = SMOOware Subversion
Then I created a passwd file in the conf folder
kevin = foopassword
nicole = barpassword
From the book:

A second option is to run svnserve as a standalone "daemon" process. Use the
-d option for this:

$ svnserve -d
$ # svnserve is now running, listening on port 3690

To increase security, you can pass the -r option to svnserve, which
restricts it to exporting only repositories below that path:

$ svnserve -d -r /usr/local/repositories
So then from a cmd box I tried svnserve -d -r c:\svn
There was never any message displayed from the process as described in the
I tried svn://localhost/*.*
from the IE browser on the machine where I installed the package.
I used ctl-C to stop it.
I was signed on as administrator to the machine during the entire session.
I figure I must be doing something wrong from the get go because there does
not seem to be much to get wrong.
Any direction with this situation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in
advance for your attention to this inquiry.
Best regards
